Not only did McPherson High School have an outstanding volleyball season on the court this past fall, it did so off the court as well.

The Kansas Volleyball Association announced its All-Academic honors and the Bullpups dominated. This year’s All-Academic first team consists of those players with a 4.0 GPA or higher, and those with a 3.75 to 3.99 were named honorable mention.

First-team selections for the Bullpups were Paige Regnier, Abby Pedersen, Alisa Becker, Ashtyn Schieferecke, Moira Pyle and Rhianna Smith.

Bullpups named honorable mention were Hannah Marshall and Megan Pedersen.

The Bullpups were ranked No. 1 in Class 4A Division I throughout the entire regular season and made the state tournament before being ousted in pool play.
